Everyone with Parkinson’s has different symptoms.
The main symptoms of Parkinson’s are tremor, rigidity and slowness of movement.
As well as affecting movement, people with Parkinson’s can find that other issues, such as tiredness, pain, depression and constipation, can have an impact on their day-to-day lives.
The symptoms someone has and how quickly the condition develops will differ from one person to the next.
The Signs and Symptoms of Parkinson’s section on our website will tell you more.
The symptoms can be controlled using a combination of drugs, therapies and occasionally surgery.
As Parkinson’s progresses, an increased amount of care and support may be required, although many people maintain a good quality of life with limited care or treatment.
The aim of the Smellebrities book is to raise fund for Parkinson’s UK the support and research charity who are leading the work to find a cure.
